Cerner chosen by Virginia DBHDS to implement a new EHR at 13 facilities
The Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, or DBHDS, has selected Cerner to implement a new electronic health record, or EHR, at its 13 facilities across the state. This agreement provides DBHDS with a health care IT platform that will help doctors, nurses and staff as they work to support individuals by promoting recovery, self-determination and wellness in all aspects of life. DBHDS, a state agency of the Commonwealth of Virginia, will transition to Cerner Millennium, a health care IT platform designed to support and engage consumers through their health care journey across different venues of care. A digital record that brings together each patient's health information from different care venues will benefit doctors and nurses with an up-to-date view of a person's well-being.
